Success Story: Why Inland Empire Chamber Switched to EventBank from Chamber Master
This success story is a result of feedback received from the Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce (IERCC) in the United States where a solution was needed to replace their previous chamber management software, Chamber Master. The IERCC was seeking at the time a replacement that could harmonize all of their needed tools under one roof, while simplifying the back-end experience so that they could focus on bringing engaging experiences to their members.
The Old School
The Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce had been using Chamber Master prior to their 2017 sign on date with EventBank, and through their rough experience using Chamber Master, they grew to loathe it as it simply was not being updated to meet with standard digital b2b platforms. Chamber Master was reportedly too “old school”, and the backend was confusing enough that it made it more of a headache to use over time.
The Inland Regional Chamber was in need of a platform that had all of their necessary features and tools under one umbrella, that was easy to use, and smarter than the average digital platform on the market.
The New School
After searching for some time, the IERCC came across EventBank among other tools, and saw early on that EventBank not only had the required tool-sets and feature-sets, but these tools all communicated with each other, consolidating data into one place, and removing unnecessary work that Chamber Master fostered.
After a smooth on-boarding and data-migration from Chamber Master to EventBank, the IERCC was pleased with the smooth transition, citing that EventBank was just a smarter platform overall, simple to use, and the customer success support could not have been better.
“It is imperative that you research Eventbank if you want to take your chamber to the next level. As with any new software application there will be be a learning curve, but once you familiarize yourself with Eventbank, you’ll love it! It’s the best software on the market for any business organization, not just chambers of commerce.”
Edward Ornelas, Jr., Inland Empire Chamber of Commerce, President
Since 2017, the IERCC has been spending a lot less time fidgeting with their software, and are now using it to engage members in a much smarter manner. With the prioritization of work dedicated to content, engagement, and deliverable messaging, the IERCC was spending their time more wisely on EventBank, rather than solving headaches with Chamber Master before.
Each tool with Chamber Master fit the IERCC’s needs, but because of the convoluted back-end experience and lack of consolidated data, Inland Regional Chamber had found that most of their experience on Chamber Master was solving issues caused by Chamber Master like mis-allocated data, duplicate data, and tools that simply could not have the same content replicated in other tools.
An example of EventBank’s smarter use of data between tools is the ability to create event web pages with your content, and with only a few clicks and less than 2 minutes, you could generate event invite emails using your content, images, and settings without any manual labor added to the process, saving time and effort in the promotional stages of events.
Since then the IERCC has been an avid supporter of EventBank, and is one of our most active clients, giving feedback to our customer support teams so that we can improve experiences for all of our clients.
